"Pyke makes no secret that Autechre were a key influence, but his equally complex work is utterly distinct thanks to the far more analogue and organic textures he employs. Rewind Below is packed full of Artificial Intelligence series references, from Black Dog Productions Bytesto Arovane ping and delay or Autechre chrome all the way down to Doctor Rockit strangeness.
Or perhaps you’re looking to spiral out to all four corners of the globe in multi-instrumental, genre-splicing fashion, in which case look no further than the multiple-schizophrenic Rewind Beyond. Mouth harp, bells, gamelan, motorcycle engines, xylophones, bouncing balls, the kitchen sink? All here in spades.
Time to look back at how Freeform was looking forward."

"REWIND" is a retrospective in the shape of 3 albums ( Rewind Below, Rewind Above and Rewing Beyond) each corresponding to a period in Simon's ever evolving discography, ranging from the early 90s to the early 2000s.
A fascinating trip into unheard gems of totally brittish yet global or even interstellar electronica. 100% Freeform inside with the expected unique blend of Traditional "World" Music, FM percussions, IDM, Prepared Instruments, aquatic Jazz, Muzak, Musique Concrete, Funk, etc.
